A Bar for Dogs Opens in Chelsea

Everyone loves going for a drink with their best friend, but do you ever go for a drink with your actual best friend?

Two Top Chefs, Three Michelin Stars, One Meal

There was a time when kitchens were things of utmost privacy. Prying eyes weren’t allowed near those swinging doors and guests were presented with their plates of food with almost no awareness of what’s gone on behind the scenes up to that point. Masterchef and Hell’s Kitchen have a lot to thank for lifting the veil on the professional kitchen; the place of shiny stainless steel, foot-high flames, whites and the occasional swear word (depending on which programme you’re watching…). Nowadays, kitchens seem almost communal places. Chef’s tables are a sought-after destination and chefs themselves are willing to allow others […]

Awesome Afternoon Teas

The Afternoon Tea for Meat Lovers

We can’t say we’ve ever walked out of an afternoon tea and not felt ten pounds heavier but sometimes half-hearted sandwiches and soggy scones just don’t satisfy emotionally. And yes, we fully believe afternoon tea is an emotionally-charged experience. Say goodbye to cucumber, farewell to smoked salmon and replace your fillings with the heartiest options of all: get set for the meatiest tea in town. Steak destination, Heliot Steak House are proving that tea doesn’t have to be dainty as they put their spin on sarnies, pastries and drinks.

Moët Party Day is Back

If Champagnes were reimagined as people then Moët & Chandon would be the partier, the Great Gatsby character of the group. They’d have the biggest soirees, everyone would be invited and you’d spend the next day feeling rather sorry for yourself but also rather smug that you were there. And whilst Moët & Chandon is still just a drink, it does have its own day Moët Party Day which is taking place this Saturday. A worldwide event, over seventy countries are getting involved, with forty bars and restaurants across the UK getting ready to pop the corks including several in London. […]
